Cisco switch integrates
data, voice and video
The Cisco Catalyst 6500 series
of switches have several new security modules
added to its switching platform. The Catalyst
6500 series brings data, voice, and video integration
onto a single platform for fully integrated communications
in the access, distribution, and core layers of
the network. It supports Ethernet and Fast Ethernet
switching modules that offer physical interface
flexibility, and supports wire-speed, switched
connectivity for unshielded twisted-pair (UTP),
shielded twisted-pair (STP), and fiber-optic cable.
Features: Fast Ethernet enhancements delivered
by the 48-port Inline Power 10/100 BaseT Ethernet
switching module offers the network administrator
centralized power control, which translates into
greater network availability. Deploying the switch
with UPS systems in secured wiring closets, network
administrators can ensure that building power
outages will not affect network telephony connections.
The new security modules for the Catalyst 6500
IPSec VPN acceleration module provides high-speed
encryption for an enterprise's infrastructure.
SSL module provides a high-performance SSL security
processor for privacy sensitive data, offloading
all encryption, decryption and secure processing
for Web based applications and e-commerce websites.
Network Analysis Module (NAM) delivers integrated
traffic monitoring capabilities for full visibility
into applications, hosts, conversations, VoIP
and QoS. The NAM adds intelligence to the network
infrastructure to understand how the network
resources are being used. This information is
critical to better utilize the resources, detect
anomalies and isolate network problems.
The Firewall Module offers exceptional performance
integrated stateful inspection up to layer 7,
extending security from edge to internal networks,
helping implement end-to-end security policies
for the network.
The Cisco Catalyst 6500 series is scalable to
256 Gbps of switching bandwidth using a cross-bar
switching fabric architecture. Up to 528 fabric-enabled
10/100 Fast Ethernet ports or 264 fabric-enabled
100FX ports can be supported on a single 13-slot
